Sahiwal massacre: CM Buzdar gets trolled for offering bouquet to grieving child
SAHIWAL: Chief Minister Usman Buzdar was trolled on Twitter and other social media platforms after an image of the Punjab chief minister surfaced, showing him presenting a bouquet to the child who was injured in the Sahiwal tragedy.
People were furious enough at the Sahiwal massacre, at the police brutality that took place when the chief minister’s picture surfaced, presenting the child whose parents were murdered, with a bouquet.
That set things off on Twitter with several people pointing out that bouquets were given usually for joyous occasions.

ذرا سوچئے! اگر کسی کی آنکھوں کے سامنے اسکے ماں باپ اور بہن کو قتل کر دیا جائے تو آپ اسکے ساتھ جا کر تعزیت کریں گے اسے دلاسہ دیں گے لیکن کیا آپ اس کے لئے پھول بھی لیکر جائیں گے؟ جب پتہ ہے کہ یہ مظلوم بچہ سو رہا ہے تو پھولوں کے ساتھ تصویر کھنچوانے کی کیا ضرورت تھی؟ pic.twitter.com/z1ijrL758a

Both these children would experience significant psychological symptoms of trauma for many years and are likely to develop emotional disorders later in life. Someone like Buzdar doesn’t even have the basic ability to understand the magnitude of this trauma hence the bouquet!

Four people, including husband and wife and their teenage daughter, were killed when a team of counter-terrorism force opened fire on a car in broad daylight in Sahiwal on Saturday.
The victims, all from Lahore, were going to Burewala to attend a wedding.
The CTD personnel who took part in the staged encounter were detained and an FIR was lodged against them.
Ahead of his two-day visit to Qatar, Premier Khan took to Twitter to reassure the nation of his commitment to punish the guilty.
“The grief & anger of the ppl of Pak on Sahiwal incident is understandable & justified,” Khan wrote, adding: “I assure the nation that when I return from Qatar not only will the guilty be given exemplary punishment but I will review the entire structure of Punjab police & start process of reforming it.”
